As someone who is a bit of a geek for design, my ears instantly perked up when I got word of the Edit: Expo For Design, Innovation & Technology event that hits Toronto starting this Thursday, September 28th to October 8th, 2017. Not only will this 10-day event feature thought-provoking talks, immersive exhibits and interactive workshops from some of the world’s greatest futurists (including the one and only David Suzuki) but it will all be kicked off with an epic opening party.
Taking place this Thursday night from 9pm until late, the opening party promises to unite more than 1,000 ‘dreamers, disruptors and party revelers’ to experience an ultramodern world where design and innovation are the solutions to today’s grand challenges. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Now imagine it all inside East Harbour, the 150,000-square-foot factory space that was the former home of the Unilever Soap Factory.
Recently I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the site in person and trust me when I say that this event is gonna be cool af my friends.
Ever eager to support the Toronto arts and culture scene — and especially when it involves those who are pushing innovation, technology and design forward — I was quick to jump on board to help raise awareness about this fantastic event in any way I could.
To do this I asked the Edit team to provide me with two coveted tickets (worth $85 each) to the big opening night extravaganza. Yes, to give readers and interested attendees (who might not otherwise be able to afford to go) the opportunity to attend, but also to have you, the reader that might care about this as much as I do, help spread the word about this amazing event and support an incredible cause.
What is that cause, you ask? Ticket sales from this party will go to supporting the Design Exchange, Canada’s first and only design museum.
For more on what you can expect at the big party, The Design Exchange promises to treat guests to future-forward food from Toronto’s hottest caterers, an Ace Hill Beer Garden, and a busy dance floor thanks to live DJ sets from some of Toronto’s most recognized talents on the decks.
